Description of cPanel Web Hosting

For your info, it's good to know that most of the cPanel website hosting offerings on the current hosting marketplace are provided by a quite insignificant business segment (when it comes to annual money flow) dubbed reseller hosting. Reseller web hosting is a type of a small business segment, which furnishes an enormous quantity of different web hosting trademarks, yet offering strictly the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting solutions. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Because of the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the website hosting offers on the entire website hosting marketplace offer literally the same solution: cPanel. There's no difference at all. Even the cPanel website hosting prices are similar. Very identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other website hosting platform/website hosting Control Panel option. Thus, there is simply one fact: out of more than two hundred thousand website hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than 2 percent, mind that one...

200,000 "website hosting vendors", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The website hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offers" Google presents to all of us boil down to merely one and the very same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of 1000's of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are just a regular fellow who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the website creation processes and the website hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and web sites. Are you ready to make your hosting choice? Is there any web hosting variant you can settle on? Sure there is, at the moment there are more than two hundred thousand website hosting firms out there. Formally. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than ninety eight percent of these 200k+ unique web hosting brands around the world will offer you absolutely the same cPanel web hosting CP and platform, named differently, with strictly the same price tags! WOW! That's how enormous the variety on the current web hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The website hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple mathematics demonstrates that to chance upon a non-cPanel based web hosting supplier is a big strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in fifty chance that a thing like that will occur! Less than 1 in fifty...

The pros and cons of the cPanel-based website hosting solution

Let's not be relentless with cPanel. After all, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was modish and probably met most website hosting industry preconditions. To put it briefly, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one domain to host. But, if you have more domains...

Weak Side No.1: A stupid domain name folder arrangement

If you have 2 or more domain names, though, be very watchful not to remove completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each subsequent hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are quite easy to remove on the hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite popular public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Discover for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder structure is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/rebeka.my-third-wife.net (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you growing puzzled? We unquestionably are!

Weakness Number 2: The same email folder system

The mail folder arrangement on the web server is literally the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin chums strongly enhance their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the email server, hoping not to mess things up too harshly.

Downside Number 3: An utter deficiency of domain management tools

Do we have to point out the absolute shortage of a modern domain name administration user interface - a location where you can: register/migrate/renew/park or administer domains, modify domain names' Whois info, protect the Whois details, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System records? cPanel does not supply such a "contemporary" tool at all. That's a vast downside. An unforgivable one, we would like to add...

Drawback No.4: Many login locations (min 2, max three)

How about the demand for another login to use the billing transaction, domain and tech support management GUI? That's aside from the cPanel login credentials you've been already supplied by the cPanel website hosting service provider. Now and then, on the basis of the billing platform (especially devised for cPanel solely) the cPanel website hosting distributor is availing of, the ardent clients can end up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing/domain administration software solution; 2: the ticket support menu), winding up with a total of 3 user login places (including cPanel).

Shortcoming No.5: More than one hundred and twenty CP departments to get to know... promptly

cPanel offers to your attention more than 120 sections inside the website hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to become acquainted with each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them rapidly... That's excessively impudent on cPanel's side.

With all due veneration, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based website hosting companies:

As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Mind that one as well...
